fabric name: briar rose calico in lilac
designer: heather ross
line: briar rose
this was another instance of cutting into something treasured. much like my lizzie house, i’ve only used these in bits and pieces, or frankly, not at all.
i recently discovered that this line is out of print. i haven’t really been too swayed by that thought before. but i’d always pictured i’d make a quilt for my daughter using the whole line. but if you can’t find parts of the line, you certainly can’t make something using the whole thing.
cue internet overload, and tracking down a piece of every single print. plus kind friends, offering to send bits… completion has been achieved. i can’t seeing doing that with many lines. this one isn’t so much for me, as a sweet little quilt for my daughter. she loves frogs and strawberries, the palette is just too perfect. greens, blues, sunny yellow, a dash of pink and purple… it’s what i like to call- girly light.
anyway, the above was scraps from a previous small project. i love that i was able to use them, and they didn’t go to waste. the perfect life for scraps- hexies!
